I came across Cantenaar Cheese in the cheese case at Goat Inc., in Mississauga. This cheese was advertised as a low fat, low salt cheese. I figured that also meant low flavour. I have to report that I was pleasantly surprised. If I had not been told this was a “healthy” cheese I would not have figured it as such. The cheese is nutty, buttery and has a pleasant texture.
Cantenaar is a cow’s milk cheese that comes from Holland. It has 40% less fat and 25% less salt than “regular” cheese. It’s taste is closest to an aged Gouda. I like that it has less fat and salt. I can justify eating a little more. This cheese is so good I want to.
Here is a youtube video describing Cantenaar.
